Aucklanders were roaring with laughter last night as Ru Paul’ Drag Race season six winner Bianca Del Rio hit the stage for her sold out show on K’road’s Encore Bar and Cabaret. 

Arriving after only a short delay in a grey track pant suit, Bianca Del Rio was quickly ushered past the adoring swarms to head backstage, she gave a quick glance out to the audience which caused the room to erupt with madness, this set the tone for the evening.

Del Rio went on to tell the audience about how she started in drag, her time on Ru Paul’s drag race and threw shade at her fellow “sisters” from the show.


Four lucky party goers were picked out of the crowd by Del Rio to be apart of her show. One contestant wore head to toe black, which Del Rio branded “lesbian chic,” while another nearly had to be renamed by the comedian,”It’s Tui? Like the Beer,” she was told, “Thats to hard, I’m just going to call you Mary,” Del Rio responded.

Fans took to social media to gush their love for #HurricaneBianca
